Seeking candidates for a 2 year fellowship in Neuropsychology, to begin on September 4, 2012. The joint BWH/MGH fellowship is a program of Harvard Medical School.

Specialized experience will be offered in the epilepsy surgery program including Wada Tests and intraoperative cortical mapping.

A required portion of the fellowship will be research activity through a proposed project or via participation with faculty in ongoing research projects. Didactic opportunities abound at both settings. The training experience is enriched by a highly collaborative teaching environment in which the fellow will work closely with neuropsychologists, behavioral neurologists, psychiatrists, and others with a special interest in brain and behavior. There are opportunities to supervise graduate practicum students. A competitive stipend ($45,000) plus excellent benefits are offered.
